Do you get ulcers by always skipping meals


the primary cause is bacterial infection in the stomach...not skipping meals. ulcers are thought to be the product of having this bacteria in the stomach plus the level of acid in the tummy.


bacteria? really? always thought it was because of not eating on time and stress!!!


i read that its a combination of these bacteria and stomach acids. but as to why people have different levels and why it reacts the way it does to bacteria causing ulcers is not yet clear.

but it seems to me that stressed people and heavy drinkers tend to have ulcers than non-stressed and non drinkers :(


I noticed though that people who are always tense and those who smoke tend to develop ulcers. My dad had a stomach ulcer too and he was frequently stressed and was a smoker...same with my brother
